French gold francs are some of the oldest minted gold coins in the world. Over the centuries the French franc has been shadowed by Switzerland's Swiss gold franc. Switzerland's central location, privacy laws, and political stability have helped make it one of the worlds most trusted financial hubs. However, is the French gold coins that have the same gold content as the Swiss franc along with a diverse history.
There are currently three French gold coins available today that are recognized worldwide and accepted in global trade. US gold bullion dealer Regal Assets has now made all three of these gold coins available to Americans. Out of the three, the most famous would be the French "lucky angel" coin. It began minting in 1871 and has a long history of fables and stories of bringing good fortune and luck.
Investing in gold coins has taken a huge leap as today's investors are using gold to hedge against inflation. Even countries that used to put their money in US dollars, real estate or the stock market are embracing gold due to its international appeal. French gold coins are considered world gold coins as they are associated with the Swiss gold franc and the British gold sovereign.
French gold has not only the value of its gold content, which changes relative to spot gold prices, but its collectible value to gold coin collectors. As the demand for gold picked up after the recession gold investors broadened their holdings into niches such as these french coins and the Mexican gold coins which contain 1.2 ounces of gold.
